Which Oil is Best for Soap Making?
As you can see I enjoy using Essential oil and a melt & pour soap base option, but some homemade soaps are made using different kinds of oils. The best oils for soap making include, but are not limited to; Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, and Cocoa Butter. Each oil for homemade soap has a different purpose, such as conditioning or moisturizing as well as adding hardness to your homemade soap.

Melt & pour soap base is what I prefer to use when making homemade soap. This base for soap comes all ready for you to use as a soap base for your homemade soap creation.
